If you are interested in moving up and you are not in the "in" crowd, you are very limited. Co-workers are very friendly and supportive.
Pros: great co-workers, great training opportunities
Cons: limited career advancement, very low pay
Busey Bank is a nice place to work as long as you did not want anything further than what you had. Career advancement is almost impossible when they have you in a place in which they have perceived you to be, no matter what skills and qualifications you have gained, especially with race and gender relations. Training in your current job was great for they believe that training is very important. My co-workers were very friendly and we celebrated everyone's personal and professional milestones. My biggest problem there was my situation in terms of advancement. It wasn't my performance because I always received excellent performance appraisals and as we set goals for myself, I worked hard to make those goals. I took advantage of all the training opportunities that applied to me and my goals and it did not pay off. I eventually had to move on.
